Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 8, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY. MARCH 8, 1018 THE LETHBRinCE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE Calgary Scribes Again Beefing About Basket Championship We have long suspected that Calgary was Alberta. To read the Calgary papers one could gather no other impression. Even the juvenile quill manipulators of the sport pages of the Calgary dailies show that they have never been far from their own back yard .by the manner in which they talk Calgary to the exclusion of all else. They have, however, at last admitted that Edmonton is a dot on thn map somewhere Up near the Arctic circle, and as Edmonton has a basketball team or two, Calgary takes notice. As for Lethbridge, Raymond, Stirling and Taber where most of the basketball In the province is played, the Calgary scribes �re quite in the dark. Their ignorance Is appallng. Of course Calgary has counted the southerners out as professionals, which is quite a Joke when one considers amateur sport as she is played in Hog Town. With this in mind it is refreshing to read about Calgary and Edmonton playing off for the provincial basketball "championship." Here is the effusion of the'Calgary Herald on this subject: Basketball comes next on the championship list between Calgary and Edmonton, and there remains little doubt but that the roughnecks up north v/ill have the floor sprinkled with red pepper or some other fiendish dsvlce to trip up the local basket tossers. The descendants of this great Swrm-sklsyth Eskimo tribe are apt to resort to almost anything in order to cop off the ba3ketbF.II honors, now that they have lost out or. the hockey championship, though it must be admitted that they almost grabbed that title by putting all the Calgary players in with the spectators and rushing the empty goal by themselves. The Edmontonians claim to have a house full under that proverbial "hat" about Calgary amateurs, and they intend to tear loose shortly if the locp.l authorities press the charges of professionalism against the northern city basketballers. Days of joking have passed, and Just as soon as the Eskimos draw their amateur cards for the provincial basketball championship series with Cal-J gary the locals will be ready for1 them with a finished team.

BARRY BARONS, ALBERTA , March 1st, 1918, ~" We, the undersigned, wish to testify that Prof. Barry's course of instruction in horse Training is all and more than it is advertised to be, the first lesson in our opinion being worth the amount he charges for his full course. , The term or expression Horse Breaking may and often dow convey the idea that harsh or brutal treatment is necessary In the subduing of horses, but Prof. Barry's system would commend itself to any humanitarian or member of the S.
